To what extent can social mores be enforced by law? To what extent should social mores be enforced by law?

If you've been to Saudi Arabia, you can see that the answer to the first question is "to an extreme extent". The importance of the second question then becomes clear, because we don't want a civilized society like Saudi Arabia's.

Without doing so, maintaining the staus quo, I believe everything else is futile.
The solution you propose would undoubtedly work but the ONLY way it will ever be implemented is by the welfare state going broke--and it will.

If recreational drugs which are presently illegal were made legal in the same way alcohol was (re)legalized, why would the result be significantly different?

Well, the mafia didn't quit killing people when prohibition ended. What would be the basis of a theory that drug dealers would quit killing people if drugs were legalized?
Would they quit being sociopaths?

According to NBC news, not generally considered to be a bastion of conservatism, in 2007 nearly half of the U.S. murder victims were black, a majority of them were black males aged 17-19, and 93 percent of black murder victims were killed by other blacks.

Blacks made up about 13% of the U.S. population at the time.


http://www.nbcnews.com/id/20203888/#.USPfI_KvCSo

Now, to be honest, I don't know how many of those murders were committed with firearms, but I suspect most of them were.

So, yes, the OP has a point, no matter how much the PC folks among us do not like it.

Black-on-black gun crime is absolutely a disproportionately large % of gun crime overall. Juan Williams, of all people, was bemoaning that fact on O'Reilly last night and questioning why black leaders are so remiss in publicly recognizing the problem. His point was that black leaders love to portray gun crime as a "white" problem, when in fact, statistics show it is far more serious in black communities than anywhere else. He blamed fatherless households and the inner-city fascination with the "gangsta" lifestyle as the two primary culprits.

Good post. Your question about how far to go is the age old question.

FWIW, I don't call Saudi Arabia civilized. It's a mysogynistic totalitarianistic society.

OP has a point but it's a societal problem. Why does the rest of society stand by while these ghettos implode? Why do some people think they are helping the black community by patting them on the head and handing them a check?

Because tough love for the black community has proven to be a no-go and people get frustrated and give up on it. Bill Cosby was absolutely ostracized by black leaders for suggesting that black kids "pull up their pants and act like a man instead of like a punk". If you suggest anything other than "patting them on the head and handing them a check", you are branded as insensitive and a racist...end of story. At this point, people don't know how to reverse 50-60 years of the welfare-state mindset.

Daniel Patrick Monyhan, super liberal, wrote what was going to happen to blacks early in his career, and had started to figure out how much damage good intentions had caused, before he died.

It's because over 70% are born out of marriage.

I don't know why so many people have a problem understanding this. It's pretty simple. We're dealing with 2 different volatile compounds. One is called SPB (stupid poor black people) and the other is called SPW (stupid poor white people).

SPB is found mostly in inner cities where it tends to be more concentrated which increases the frequency of interaction so the potential for a violent reaction is much greater. SPW tends to be more diluted across the country in the more rural areas where it finds far less opportunity to react with either SPB or more SPW.

Looking at overall violent crime, I was able to calculate that 86% of all violent crime in the country is committed by members of the black and Hispanic minorities...23% of the US population. Meanwhile, the rates among members of other races living in poverty are no where near as high...so there is definitely something more than just poverty at the heart of this. I believe there is a cultural disposition towards violence. Before the flames start, my last statement was the only opinion stated here: the rest is cold hard stats you can easily verify for yourselves using the UCR and CDC data.

There is, IQ. The average black IQ is 85 compared to 100 for white and 105 for Asians.

Trying to blame the problem on any one race is just simply wrong.

We've kicked God out of our society and embraced every deviant behavior known to man, and as a result we now have a society where anything goes and we no longer have respect for each other, or anything.

Life has been cheapened by TV and movie violence, and by video games that glorify killing and violence. Most of the population is addicted to chemicals in one form or another. The rest are just simply pissed off at the world.

Illegal drugs are a MAJOR problem in this country and fuel most of the violence and gun crimes, yet most Americans want more drugs legalized. Figure that one out.

The gang/hip hop culture is another problem that is completely out of control and being tolerated by lawmakers and the general population.

When you tell your children that they're descended from apes and that they're no different than animals, then they go out and act like animals.

Today, the easiest way out of life's complex problems is drugs.
If drugs don't solve your problem, then grab a gun.

That's what we've trained our society to do.

Personal responsibility is an outdated concept and your problems are always the fault of someone else. You deal with that by walking in to some place and opening fire with a gun.

People get the government they deserve.
It seems that they also get the society they deserve.

..
You are a wise man. That is how I think and feel about all this craziness.

In the video he said growing up in a single parent household on average lowered IQ. Now, cause vs effect, I have no idea. quan lot winny quan lot nam sieu mong do ve sinh rang mieng cho be vay lien cong so quan ao ban buon cho thue trang phuc hoa trang

Source? Not picking at ya, just wondering where you got this information.

My first thoughts were that the IQ of black people that identify as black would have lower average IQs. Who's putting them down as black? Is it the test taker themselves or the test givers?

There are plenty of people that many would call black that don't identify as black. Like Morgan freeman said, "I am not a minority, I am a human being and there are over 7 billion of us." I don't consider myself white and I study evolution enough to know that there is no genetic distinction between the races. It's all just variations in skin tone. It's not even a cultural thing across the board. A short conversation with Eminem and Neil deGrasse Tyson would prove that point.

I suppose that if we all went down to Sherwin Williams and picked a sample card that closest matched our skin tone and then called ourselves that color name then that would be more accurate but it's still a stupid criteria for dividing ourselves. I'd be Ambitious Amber and I could point out that we're smarter on average than the Gallant Goldies but I'd be an idiot that needs somebody to feel better than to do so.

http://www.materials-world.com/paint...olorOpt-03.gif

Somebody that will check the black or African American box to describe themselves has already bought into the idea that there is such a thing as race when there really isn't which shows a predisposition to lower intelligence and a level of gullibility that would lead one to expect the IQ results that you posted. The smartest "black" people like to avoid this condescension and attempt to pigeon hole them for someone else's gain. I have met many of them even when working for HUD for years.

I never mark race boxes on anything because that information is only used to separate us into groups and build cases for giving more tax money and special concessions to minority groups. I'm not as opposed to social programs as most here but I would at least like to see it distributed on the basis of need rather than race.

Ask me how much I care if you think I'm telling the truth. The guy that commented right before you is advocating that drug and alcohol users be executed by the government and you decided to harp on my interview fib yet again? One can only assume that you agree with his point more than mine. That's pretty telling.

Um, yeah. Prohibition was an utter failure. So it was changed and worked out fine.

Time to do that with marijuana.

Blacks are about 15% of the population and commit about 50% of the gun homicides.

Doesn't matter whether the reason is no fathers, brain size, economics, etc...facts are facts. If we don't admit they are the biggest problem then we can't start to figure out why and then address it.

Pretty simple logic. But no politically correct. So, they demonize white guys with assault weapons because you can say anything bad or derogatory about that group and most everyone applauds.
